The awful stretches are not worth the good stretches basically. I like the guy, but the team needs to move on and get what they can for him before he walks. A lot of teams will likely overvalue him.
The Clowe issue is a really big and annoying one. His contract is up at the end of the season, so we won't get full value for him. And DW will only trade him if he gets another top-6 forward in return. But no one is going to offer a top-6 forward for him at the deadline, unless that forward is similarly a rental (Viktor Stalberg anyone?). So we're basically stuck with him this year. Then we either re-sign him (probably to a bad contract) and keep having the same problem, or we don't re-sign him and only have 5 top-6 caliber forwards (obviously Clowe is arguable right now).

Stop ruining our fun.
